dim ie as object
set ie = createobject("InternetExplorer.Application")
ie.visible=true
ie.navigate "www......"
ie.document.all("inputfieldname").value=.....

You can find "inputfieldname" if you view the source of HTML page

Maybe I didn't explain what I really wanted in my earlier question.

I know that samopals answer satiesfies my question but what i really want to work is this:
I have some data in a VB textbox, i.e."Username", when pressing a commandButton I would like this data to be transferred to an input (type="Text")on a html-page wich is opened in my default browser...

Maybe this will help explaining my initial question!

Thanks

Sorry, I only know how to do this with IE. May be somebody helps you with NN. But "default browser"... There is no common solution for all browsers (IMHO)

Yes, I can give you an idea

dim Element as object
For each Element in Ie.Document.All
  If Element.Tagname="INPUT" Then
     Element.Value = "...."
     Exit For
  end If
Next

But... It may be not only one INPUT element on the page. It may be TEXTAREA. If your page have Frames, then

Dim Fr as object
If Ie.document.frames.length>0 then
  For each Fr in Ie.Document.Frames
   For each Element in Fr.Document.All
     If Element.Tagname="INPUT" Then
       Element.Value = "...."
       Exit For
      end If
   Next
  Next
End If

What I want to say - it's impossible to find common solution.....
